Bookmarks for Book Worms

Abby and I made bookmarks during the recent snow days. Thought we could send these as a little Valentine treat to some of our favorite book worms.

where is my camera anyway???

Abby got a hold of my camera last week and had her own little photo shoot.

This one really makes me laugh.

Hakuna Matata

When Abby was around 3 years old I introduced her to my VHS copy of Disney's Lion King. Well she fell in love. We now own the DVD and every book, cd and toy related to the movie. Any large rock we come across quickly turns into Pride Rock and I can not tell you how many times I have had to pretend to be Scar while she plays the part of Mufasa. So you can guess how excited we were when we were given tickets to the theatrical production for Christmas. I have seen the show in Toronto and on Broadway but nothing will ever compare to watching my little girl, wide eyed, mouthing the lines along with the characters. She absolutely loved it. Thanks Grandma Gail for making a dream come true.

Bear Fun

Well the snow and ice have given Abby and I both a week off school. It is like Christmas break take 2. I have loved almost every minute of it.

Most of you know that I spent several years teaching kindergarten. Because of that, I have about 12 plastic storage tubs in my attic filled with fun things for 5 and 6 year olds. I pulled out the Winter tub a few days ago and Abby was excited about all the Bear things she found.

We made Bear Biscuits.

Stuffed and sewed a grocery bag bear.

We have also have read several bear books. Here is one of our faves.
Have you been snowed in this week? What are you doing to pass the time?

Happy Snow Day

We woke up to 4 inches of snow this morning and it continued to snow most of the day.
Even Cleo got in on the fun.
